Teaching and Learning
Quality teaching and an innovative, integrated curriculum are the cornerstones of Babson’s academic program.
Through our innovative curriculum that combines theory with practice and a wide range of co-curricular opportunities, Babson models that teaching is a two-way street. Our faculty share their experience and expertise, and students are expected to contribute their ideas and energy to every academic and research activity.
With a solid liberal arts foundation and cross-disciplinary approach to functional business knowledge and entrepreneurship education, Babson College is committed to producing well-rounded leaders who can think creatively, express themselves articulately, and lead with confidence. We also combine Entrepreneurial Thought and Action and Social, Environment, Economic Responsibility and Sustainability (SEERS) principles into our courses to ensure that our students understand the importance of creating both economic and social value.
By infusing an entrepreneurial mindset and social innovation into our academic programs, Babson educates leaders capable of anticipating, initiating, and managing positive change in their organizations, industries, and in the world itself.
Cases are a key component in Babson’s pedagogy at both the undergraduate and graduate level as well as at the School for Executive Education. They provide in depth examples of real company situations, giving students a chance to formulate ‘real’ management decisions.
Babson provides resources to facilitate curriculum development and case writing efforts. Please see the Babson Faculty Pedagogy Fund site for details on the application process and contact information.
